HR Software vs. Paper … It’s No Contest

It’s costly and cumbersome. Yet, many businesses insistently cling to this outmoded system. The system, course, is the one ruled by paper and file cabinets. Despite the verifiable advantages offered by HR software, a surprising number of enterprises shun the technology. For decision makers of these businesses, the old ways seemingly are the best ways. Paper has always done the job quite admirably. Why change horses in mid-stream? Fortunately, many of these resistors eventually experience an epiphany of sorts, which serves as a catalyst for change. Duly enlightened, these HR managers embrace the inherent advantages of HR systems and champion the cause of implementation. Those who simply don’t see the light, however, should know the pitfalls of clinging to the obsolete.

The first of these pitfalls is error risk. HR software digitizes and streamlines key processes, thereby minimizing managerial and employee mistakes. The constant handling of paper-bound information, on the other hand, increases the chances of miscalculation. As is well known, errors are most damaging and potentially costly when they affect compliance. Contrastingly, digitized data enhances accuracy in all areas, including compliance.

Time-consumption is another facet of operations addressed by HR technology. Handled manually, reports and other informational documents require an extensive investment of time. Compare this to the highly efficient document management and generation characteristic of HR systems. This technology reduces time expenditures from hours (or days) to minutes. Not only does this compression contain costs, it increases managerial availability for higher priority duties. Freed from cumbersome paper management tasks, decision-makers can focus on more important matters and thereby enhance productivity.
